If that is not possible, one might consider using Find and replace in a 
texteditor like Notepad++

Copying the complete wiki-text into Notepad++ and then replacing {{OOo}} 
by {{Documentation/AOO}}
and repasting the new text into the wiki-page might be somewhat faster ?

I've tried it on a few pages in the Dutch translation and it seems to work.

I suspect the template {{OOo}} is not only used in the BASIC-guide, but 
also on other pages,
which might not be changed.

Apache OpenOffice 4.0.1 (Dutch) and scanned with Ziggo extended security (F-Secure)
